The PowderMills Hotel and Restaurant is a Grade II-listed Georgian country house wedding venue. It's nestled within the glorious countryside of East Sussex in a designated AONB, near the historic town of Battle, with 150 acres of parklands, lakes, woods and waterfalls for you and your guests to wander through, providing a beautifully tranquil and picturesque background to your big day.

There are five stunning areas for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception party. As for your cuisine, you can choose from their AA award-winning Orangery Restaurant wedding menus.


The PowderMills is a lovingly restored 18th-century Grade II-listed country house. Originally, it was a gunpowder factory owner's residence, being an ideal location - just outside the medieval town of Battle, where the famous confrontation of 1066 happened.

The façade of PowderMills is adorned with ancient wisteria and you may be able to glimpse a few artefacts signifying the house's gunpowder heritage. The overall effect is exquisite, with wildlife including geese, swans, ducks, kingfishers, herons, sheep and a peacock named George. It's also dog-friendly, so your pooch can be present at your big day (well-behaved dogs - £10 per night).

    Just had the most wonderful day last Saturday at the Power Mills Hotel for our daughter's wedding. Everything about the day was perfection. From Stella, the event organiser, to the chef Callum and his kitchen staff, Michael and the serving staff and David the Master of Ceremonies. A big thank you to all of you for making our day very special. We would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel for any event.
